A fascinating insight into residency projects from three exhibiting artists in the current exhibition Shifting Boundaries.

About

Speakers Anne Eggebert , Julian Walker and Ben Ashton. Chaired by curator of Shifting Boundaries Clare Sheppeard. The artists will give a brief presentation of their recent residency projects, with plenty of opportunities for discussion and questions from the audience. Mr and Mrs Walker have moved a site specific, live art project at Kettle's Yard, Cambridge. Kettle's Yard (now a museum) is the former home of Jim Ede and his wife, Helen. Eggebert and Walker decided that the best way to test Ede's idea of Kettle's Yard as a domestic living space and not a museum was to move in with their 18 month old son. As a harbinger to reality TV they installed CCTV cameras and placed a monitor in the window of the gallery space so that the passing public could view them day or night. The cctv footage, interviews and objects from performative actions will be shown at Shifting Boundaries. http://walkerjulian.tripod.com/id31.html Ben Ashton has been the artist in residence at The Bloomsbury studio since graduating with an MA from The Slade School of Fine Art. Simon Oldfield Gallery launched The Bloomsbury Studio in 2008 to provide subsidised live/work studio space in central London for emerging artists. Ben Ashton has used the residency to work towards his second solo show at Simon Oldfield Gallery in February 2011, At Home With The Astons, currently shortlisted for The London Art Award 2011. Works from this project will be on show at Shifting Boundaries. http://simonoldfield.com/artists/ben-ashton/ Booking www.brightonticketshop.com
